A loan helped a member to buy more inventory before the dry season to have sufficient stocks of vegetables for sale.


Umucyo Karenge Group's story

Chartine is 36 years old and married with 1 child. She is very committed to the well-being of her family and has managed to educate her child. She also continues to work hard to improve her family's living conditions.

Chartine sells vegetables, including beans, and has 5 years of experience in this field. She is constantly challenged by a lack of capital and the dry seasons, when most of her suppliers increase prices. Her lack of capital prevents her from reaching her sales targets and slows her business growth. Because she wants to expand her business, she is requesting this loan in order to buy more inventory before the dry season and have a sufficient stock of vegetables for sale to increase her sales and earn more revenue.

The profits from this loan will be saved and channeled into her farming business. Enthusiastically, Chartine can now believe that her family's living conditions are improving and her business expanding with this loan. This is her 4th loan cycle with Visionfund Rwanda and she is the Umucyo Karenge group leader.

In conclusion, Chartine is truly grateful toward the Kiva lenders for allowing her this loan so that she can expand her business and improve her family's living conditions.
